High School Musicians from all over Solano County came together on Sunday, January 12, 2020, at the Vacaville Performance Arts Theater to perform in the 62nd Annual Solano County High School Honor Band. Leading up to this event students were encouraged to send in audition pieces to be selected to play in this special ensemble. The total members came to 117 strong selected from ten high schools from across Solano County. RHSEU was honored with the placement of 21 students listed here below. The entire ensemble met less than a handful of times to practice the five pieces chosen for Sunday’s concert; Cyprus the Great – Karl King, Magnolia Star – Steve Danyew, Rest – Frank Ticheli, Shepherd’s Hey – Percy Grainger, and First Suite in E Flat – Gustav Holst. Led by Guest Conductor Dr. John Zarco, Director of Instrumental Ensembles and Associate Professor of Music at the University of Texas at San Antonio, the students put on a rousing performance for a full house of family and friends. We are so very proud of our Honor Band Members and of all the student musicians in our county. Well done, All!
